Kevin Adger

Kevin Adger joined Tucson News Now in April 2010.

Before coming to the Old Pueblo, Kevin worked at KTVK just up Interstate 10 in Phoenix. He started as a writer for Good Morning Arizona in November 2006. In February 2008, he worked his way up to associate producer of GMAZ. In August 2009, Kevin helped with the launch of 3TV's high school sports show, the Varsity Zone. He reported live from football and basketball games and did various stories on high school athletes in the Valley of the Sun.

Kevin received his degree in television broadcasting from Barton College in Wilson, N.C. During his last year of school, he co-anchored and reported for a community show for the school's station WEDT. When his days of playing basketball for the Bulldogs were over, Kevin was the color analyst for the games that were broadcast locally.

Some of his internships include working for Top 40 radio station KISS 95.7 in Connecticut and Fox Sports Net Pittsburgh, where he helped with the coverage of the Pittsburgh Steelers and The University of Pittsburgh football and basketball teams.

Kevin is an East Coast guy that loves the desert weather, including the 100-degree days of the summer. He was born in Bloomfield, CT, which is a suburb of the capitol, Hartford.

In his spare time, Kevin loves playing basketball, watching or attending sporting events, riding his motorcycle and playing with his children and pets.
